Europe Hiking Regions
There are many images that spring to mind when in it comes to Europe. No other place on the planet is quite the same when it comes to geographical diversity, cultural significance, history, elegance, art and gastronomy. Being an active and adventurous bunch, our aim is to get you outdoors, experiencing the wide open spaces of a region, as we know it's one of the best ways to recharge your batteries. With our Europe adventures, we've taken things a step further, by weaving in the important historical and cultural specialities of a region into your hiking, biking and paddling adventure.
Every region we explore has its own distinct cultural qualities that play a big role in the adventure! Take a break from a sea kayaking excursion and sip an espresso in a tiny village on the shore of Lake Orta in the Italian Lakes District or chat with a local mountain hotel owner about the local wine speciality in the middle of the Dolomites. Stroll the cobbled streets of Courmayeur in the Mont Blanc region, or hunt for stone trolls along Iceland’s wild southern coast. Wherever you go in Europe, you'll feel as if on the one hand you’re stepping back in time, and on the other you’re experiencing a level of sophistication that is unmatched anywhere else in the world.
